The Global Design Effort completes its mandate in style and substance

| 13 June 2013 The Global Design Effort has completed its mandate to produce a technical design for the ILC. Yesterday’s official handover of the Technical Design Report to ICFA was the culmination of a celebratory three continent event this week. The discovery of the Higgs particle at the LHC at CERN, the production of a viable design for a complementary electron-positron linear collider and the interest of the Japanese in hosting this machine combine to greatly encourage our communities’ hopes and dreams of building the ILC.

Press release: Next-generation particle accelerator is ready for construction

13 June 2013 Tokyo, Geneva, Chicago – 12 June 2013. A five-volume report containing the blueprint for a future particle physics project, the International Linear Collider (ILC), was published today. In three consecutive ceremonies in Asia, Europe and the Americas, the authors of the Technical Design Report for the International Linear Collider, a next-generation particle collider to complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, officially handed the report over to the international oversight board for projects in particle physics, the International Committee for Future Accelerators ICFA. The Technical Design Report presents the latest, most technologically advanced and most thoroughly scrutinised design for the ILC. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Global Design Efficiency – the story of a group revolution

| 21 February 2013 It all started in 2004... or so. LC NewsLine recaps the important milestones in the Global Design Effort history, and present and former honourable witnesses remember and send wishes to Barry Barish and Sake Yamada. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

A time of transition, or When men and mountains meet

and | 21 February 2013 Today represents a crossroads in the global efforts towards a linear collider. We are officially making the transition from the International Linear Collider Steering Committee and Global Design Efforts to the new Linear Collider Board and Linear Collider Collaboration that will coordinate the next phase of the global R&D towards a high-energy electron-positron collider to complement the LHC. GDE Director Barry Barish and LCC Director Lyn Evans share their vision in a joint Director’s Corner. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

From the Letters of Intent to the ILC Technical Design Report

| 7 February 2013 In his last column in ILC NewsLine, Sakue Yamada, ILC Research director, acknowledges the tremendous collaborative effort which has made possible the accomplishment of the Physics and Detectors volumes of the ILC Technical Design Report.

New leadership for the Linear Collider

| 21 June 2012 ICFA announced yesterday that Lyn Evans will become the new Linear Collider Director, when the Global Design Effort (GDE) completes the ILC Technical Design Report and thereby its mandate next year. This is very welcome news! Not only is Lyn a superb and exceptionally well-qualified candidate for the job, but his early appointment will give us the opportunity to make a smooth transition.

Nobu Toge promoted to KEK trustee

| 5 April 2012 The ILC programme’s Nobu Toge has been appointed as one of KEK's five trustees. He began working with the linear collider in 1986, later joining the Global Design Effort in 2005. Toge will remain in the GDE directorate as a member of the editorial team for the Technical Design Report. Category: Profile | Tagged: ,

GDE Executive Committee meets face to face

| 22 March 2012 The Global Design Effort Executive Committee met face to face in Washington, DC, last month. One of the main goals was to agree on the detailed plan towards completing the Technical Design Report, including decisions about the level of detail that will be included in the actual report and how to ensure that the backup documentation will be readily available.

GDE Executive Committee visits Jefferson Lab

Images: Jefferson Lab | 23 February 2012 Charles Reece, deputy director of Jefferson Lab’s Institute for Superconducting Radiofrequency Science and Technology, leads GDE Executive Committee members on a tour of the new facilities that will be available upon completion of the Technology and Engineering Development Facility, a $72 million structure that will keep the lab in the forefront of SRF developments. John Hogan, Jefferson Lab SRF Cryomodule Production Leader, shows GDE Executive Committee members the sixth C100 cryomodule (of ten) being produced at Jefferson Lab as part of the lab's 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade Project. This cryomodule is at the cold-mass assembly stage and Hogan is discussing the integrated design of the components as they relate to overall cryomodule performance. Members of the GDE Executive Committee pause during a tour of Jefferson Lab's Institute for Superconducting Radiofrequency Science and Technology for a group photo between two C100 cryomodules being built for Jefferson Lab's 12 GeV Upgrade.

GDE position paper on post-TDR

| 13 October 2011 In anticipation of completing the Global Design Effort’s final deliverable, the Technical Design Report, by the end of 2012, serious discussions are underway as to the next steps and what will follow. The International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) is taking primary responsibility for creating a plan. As part of the process, the GDE Executive Committee submitted a position paper to ILCSC for its meeting in Mumbai, India in August. I share our input with our readers today.
